This new base rate tracker ISA will have an initial interest rate of 2.5%.
As Kim Rebecchi, Leeds Building Society’s Sales and Marketing Director said though, “The financial markets are expecting the bank rate to increase by 0.75% to 1.25% by the end of the year, and the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) also expects base rate to hit 1.25% by the end of this year.
With base rate expected to rise, the rate guarantee for the full term offers comfort to investors.”

This transfer of funds also applies to all previous years ISA subscriptions from other providers.
